    What the hell is inside the Estus?

    Post by ChizFreak on Fri Nov 09, 2012 8:30 pm

    It just came up to my mind. I know Estus means fire (it was Latin I believe). But come on, it doesn't really look like it has fire inside it. What do you guys think it has inside? Orange Juice?

    To be serious though, I get the impression it's like the essence of life. You fill it at the fire, and, as you pointed out Estus means fire in latin, which I didn't know but makes sense, and it says in it's description it's linked to the fire and the fire keeper's soul. As an undead entity it would make sense for life to be insubstantial enough to need to be sustained by something exterior like that.


    And, as we all know, big mac sauce is the essence of life

    you just take some fire from the bonfire with the flask and the fire becomes something "liquid"

    LIQUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIID!

    If there is any genuine story to what's inside the flasks then I would think it's small portions of heated humanity. As it stands we do not know how much a humanity sprite can heal you. Yes we know that one can fully restore your health but whats the maximum HP value it can do? 10,000HP maybe 100,000HP or even 1,000,000HP. Using them at bonfires not only keeps the flames going but must also break down the humanity sprites to allow you to carry them in smaller portions.

    I always thought it had the same consistency as soda since it sounds 'fizzy' when you drink it. Maybe it's orange soda.

    I'd say it was the essence of life, soul juice if you will, given that you replenish the flask from Bonfires that are fuelled by humanity.

    Technically the most humanity can heal is 2700ish hp, as thats the max hp you can get winking
    I assume its condensed heat from the bonfire. Upgrading the flask allows it to condense the heat further, and kindling adds potency to the heat.

    I also have a feeling that it's connected to the soothing sunlight miracle, same color and effect.
